Has the institution adopted a policy prohibiting idling?:
Yes

A brief description of the policy:

Jefferson is partnering with Louisville Air Pollution Control District and its outreach group, KAIRE, in an attempt to reduce unnecessary engine idling on all Jefferson campuses. The Idle Free Policy states that all vehicles should be turned off when not in use or when the driver leaves the vehicle for any length of time. Equipment should not be left idling more than 1 minute and should be turned off unless doing so would hurt its operation. All Jefferson personnel or agents of Jefferson that operate a vehicle or powered equipment shall be made aware of this policy prior to operations and refreshed as necessary. Hanging posters, giving out bumper stickers, and placing metal signs outside (all provided by KAIRE) have been used in implementing the policy at the college.
